This may be my favorite of my archival albums. I released it in 1999 on MP3.com's DAM label as the third in my Cassette Archives series.
The original inner sleeve notes read:
Most of the music on Jerusaklyn was recorded for a cassette album that was never released. The CD contains all the material from that album, plus some additional tracks recorded for other purposes.
All sounds composed and performed by Joseph Zitt and recorded in Brooklyn, NY, 1986-1989 except "Theme" which is based on a traditional melody and includes found sounds recorded at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, 1986.
Thanks to those who inspired and encouraged this music including (but not limited to) Fayge Kleinbart, Manny (from Lunch for Yor Ears), Shosh Forbes, and John, Gale, and Irene Cowan.
